Coffs Coast small businesses can sign up for a new $1500 rebate scheme to help cover the cost of NSW and local government fees and charges.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said the Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate was designed to benefit tens of thousands of small businesses across the state as NSW continues its post-pandemic recovery.

“The Government’s November 2020 Budget committed nearly $500 million to this rebate, which will leave more money in the pockets of eligible small businesses, sole traders and non-profit organisations,” Mr Singh said.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and supporting them equals supporting jobs.”

Mr Singh said claiming the rebate would be simple and could be done online.

“Liquor licences, food authority licences, council rates and outdoor seating fees are just a few examples of the fees and charges that can be claimed back through this rebate scheme. I encourage all eligible small businesses in my community to register for the $1500 credit through Service NSW.”

The rebate will be available until 30 June 2022.
